COLUMBIA — During the past week, Missourian photographers gathered images from the start of summer school at Battle High School as well as the Missouri Symphony Orchestra. The other best images came from Shred Fest, a T-ball game and the MU High School graduation ceremony. 

In this photograph by Kelly Coleman, conductor Kirk Trevor leads the Missouri Symphony Orchestra's concert Thursday at Stephens Lake Park. The performance, "Strike Up the Band," kicked off the Hot Summer Nights concert series.

Megan Donohue took this photograph of Brayden Stover, who was saying "I got four balls," after he scooped up his fourth ball of the second inning of a T-ball game Wednesday. By the end of the inning, he got five.

In this photograph by Quint Smith, part of the senior class of MU High School waits for their graduation ceremony Saturday. This year, the distance learning high school graduated 120 students from seven different countries. Of the 120 students, 15 attended the ceremony.

Quint Smith captured this image of Spartan Leadership teacher Jill Villasana during the first day of summer school at Battle High School on Monday. The students are a part of the Spartan Leadership Team, which will come up with ideas for traditions and how to make these ideas come into fruition.

During Shred Fest, Kelly Coleman took this picture of Kaper Lucero performing a trick during the advanced tricks portion of the event on Saturday. During the event, the Blue Springs Pilot Club was giving away free helmets to promote skateboard and bicycle safety.
